Insulated concrete forming systems (ICFs) provide many benefits to both contractors and homeowners. Hidden from view under sheetrock and siding, ICFs offer low labor costs; are easy to install; and are durable, energy-efficient, fire-safe, and virtually soundproof. Homes built with these systems look like any other, but under the standard covering lie solid, built-to-last concrete walls. Endorsed by the Portland Cement Association, this concise handbook gives contractors the hands-on information they need to use ICFs in the field. Authors Peter A. VanderWerf and W. Keith Munsell describe how these systems work, how to train crews to install them cost-effectively, and where to order product.
